In this episode, Dan puts his instruments to one side to focus on the tracks that he has already recorded for the song. Dan likes to correct timing issues midway through a tracking stage to avoid being caught out later in the production when he records keyboard and overdubs.
12 months ago Avid ran a survey through their Avid Customer Association about future directions for Pro Tools and their other product ranges. In December they ran round 1 of a follow-up survey. They have just launched round 2 and here is what I have found...

Russ, Mike and Dan discuss the effect Facebook has on us, the benefits of a simple setup, answering questions from the community and share their finds of the week.
We get a constant flow of questions about the costs of the different versions and models of Pro Tools as well as the different ways of 'buying' Pro Tools. In this article, we unpack the cost differences between the different types of Pro Tools. We have more detail about the different types of Pro Tools in our FAQ - Pro Tools FAQs - Pro Tools First, Pro Tools Standard Or Pro Tools HD - Which Is The Right One For Me?

This free video tutorial brought to you in association with Avid is the sixth in a series, aimed at people who are new to recording or new to Pro Tools. We follow the development of a demo recording from the point of view of someone with no prior experience of recording.

This involves a new track type which records the notes played int the instrument rather than the sound the instrument makes.
